LIFE RULE #1: KEEP MAKING ART!

Find some time to DRAW every day, no matter what… Doodling something silly, creating new comics, even working on a graphic novel — just keep your pencil/pen/crayon moving, & surprise yourself. Have you drawn your DAILY MONSTER yet?

MINI-COMICS!

We’re constantly drawing & sharing new minis, both in class & online… If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, it’s probably @ the Patreon, or available by request!
